State Sen. Peter A. Inverso (R-Mercer) will announce today he will not seek re-election in the Nov. 6 election, Republican aides confirmed.
Inverso, 68, a bank executive from Hamilton, is the 12th member of the 40-member Senate to announce he is retiring from the upper house. He was elected to the Senate 1992 and has been re-elected four times in what is considered a swing district that includes suburban Mercer and Middlesex counties. The district’s two Assembly members include a Democrat and a Republican.
This weekend Mercer Democrats picked Rate Counsel Seema Singh to run for the Senate seat. Bill Baroni is expected to be the Republican candidate. Mercer Democrats have not yet chosen another candidate to run for the open Assembly seat.
